Recent Purchases

I've made a few purchases to help my winter wardrobe. I've had a lot of trouble deciding what to wear out in the evenings so I'm really glad to have found this cute Zara tee on sale for $19!

I also got this cute Patterson J. Kincaid blouse for evening wear:

I got the orange e-reader case for our new Kindle Fire, now I can take it everywhere (to read hunger games) and not worry about the screen, plus you know I love a monogram:
I got some of these storage boxes on super sale from Exposures - I'm going to finally get our wedding stuff organized and stored away!

And the best new purchase by far - Tickets to San Diego in May to visit Dave's sister!  I'm now taking recommendations for things to do and see (and most importantly eat)!

Let's talk..

Let's talk about Pinterest... I've seen many pins lately that we've just gotta discuss. Why? Because I want to know Who has time for this?!?

First up: Never-ending supply of Vanilla extract!

You know you can just buy vanilla at the store for less than $5 and most recipes only call for a dash of the stuff right?

Next up: Recycled T-Shirt padded hangers

Please refer to my above rant - padded hangers are also available at every target and walmart for less than $5...

I could do an entire post on the manicures...

Not only who has time for this? but Who wants to look at these nails 24/7!?

And Who has time to make these eco-friendly fire-pit starters? Looks easy... not!

And last: Turn old tic-tac holders into ribbon storage!

Umm.. doesn't ribbon come on a roll? wouldn't that be much easier? Just sayin...

What did I miss? What have you all seen that you wonder Who has time for this!?!?
